NC Work Ready Community
Beaufort County is working towards becoming an ACT Certified Work Ready Community! This initiative is a partnership between Washington-Beaufort County Chamber of Commerce, Beaufort County Economic Development, Beaufort County Commissioners, Beaufort County Schools, Region Q Workforce Development Board, Beaufort County Community College, and the NCEast Alliance.
What does this mean to you, the employer? A better trained workforce that will bring growth to our communities and our county. Applicants that can provide you proof, through the National Career Readiness Certification (NCRC) that they are skilled and ready to work! Beaufort County's goal is to have a minimum of 61 employers support this initiative. If you are an employer and would like to support this effort, please complete the employer sign-up form (click to download and print) and forward to Lou Stout, Director of Workforce Initiatives at Beaufort County Community College. You can fax the form to Lou at 252-940-6254 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For job seekers, the NCRC provides you with a portable nationally recognized credential that allows you to provide employers written documentation of your employability skill sets. If you are a job seeker and wish to earn your NCRC, you may contact Lou Stout at 252-940-6307 or by email at email@example.com. Her office is located in room 804 of building 8.
